Goodbye 2016 – Hello 2017

First of all, let me apologize for the YEAR LONG absence over here! A lot happened in 2016 for our family, including a very extended term of unemployment and a new full time job for my husband started in August. I took my soap making business to the next level and started selling at craft fairs and creating a ton more to sell online. And the kids just kept on GROWING. It’s been quite the year but now I’m back! I renamed the blog to better fit the “theme” because I want this to be more than just product reviews about random stuff. So today, how about I give you a peek at what we’ve been up to, a little recap of 2016, so that we can start off 2017!

That pretty much hits the fun high points of the last year. I have about a billion photos on my phone and it’s really hard to pick from them all! I promise that this year will be more about sharing and I’ll update the blog more regularly to show you what we’re up to!
